Abstract

Looking beyond the immediate future, which for the world of information and computing means the next five years, is hazardous. This paper attempts to present a vision of some aspects of the information world of the medium future. 2010 has been chosen as the date, rather than 2001, since the likely events of the earlier date can be fairly well predicted.
